No outfit post for today. I´m literally living in jeans and sweaters and in my pj bottoms too and so you know what that means, boring. In the meantime, meet the newest member of my bling family:
Is that a perfect bow, or what? ;) Normally, I never liked crawly and scaley things on my body but this little buddy is an exception. He´s too cute and cheap to pass up. Must be because I love watching V. I´m hooked on the series.
And talking about cheap,what´s up with the quality of designer brands nowadays? I´ve been reading really bad reviews by bloggers about the quality of products and services of some designers brands which isn´t at par with the moolah that was spent on buying the products. Just to let you in the know:
A Bag Down the Drain- Savvy Gal´s girlfriend was having a problem with her color changing LV bag and it wasn´t even designed to be a mood changing nor a chameleon bag!
We Got a Problem - Chiara of The Blonde Salad is fed up with her continuously falling off swarovski crystals from her Chanel ring and the pearls from her pearl earrings while the gold plating of her YSL Arty ring is starting to wear off and the stone cracked in just a short time!
Moreover,during my summer trip in Lisbon last year, I went inside a store which sells designer brands including See by Chloé. There´s this cute top which I really liked, but the cloth was too coarse for it´s price. That changed my mind.
Boohoo! I do believe that quality doesn´t come cheap but when I hear and read this kind of stories, I´m kinda hesitant of buying designer brands even if I´d have the budget for it. Come to think of it, if I save most of what I spend on clothing and accessories for the whole year I can really buy me something ¨designer¨ at the end of the year. But after hearing all this stuff, I don´t think it´s worth it and I would rather spend it on something that´ll last like fine jewelry or a classic bag made of real and durable leather. Frankly, I don´t understand what´s the fuss about buying overpriced costume jewelry. They aren´t even made of real gold and so they won´t last.
So what are your thoughts on these?
Have a love weekend, dears! :)
